What Happens After I File a Complaint?

The complaint is received, reviewed, and assigned to a supervisor for further investigation. If the supervisor is able to resolve the complaint after examining all the facts and circumstances, you will be notified. If the complaint requires further review, it will be forwarded to the Internal Affairs Supervisor for a formal investigation which is forwarded to the Chief of Police for final determination. You will be notified in writing concerning the disposition of the complaint. A formal investigation will not be initiated until a supervisor contacts the complainant in person or by telephone to determine if a formal investigation is warranted.

A formal investigation would not be initiated if the complaining party is satisfied appropriate action will be taken by an employee's supervisor.
